The Mexican Health Care Solution?

By: Matthew Dalstrom



Rising health care costs, decreasing insurance coverage, and the great recession have made it increasingly difficult to afford health care. Retirees are particularly vulnerable because many live on fixed incomes and require more medical services than younger adults. Furthermore, Medicare, the primary insurer for Americans 65 and over, does not cover all the necessary medical procedures or expenses, and supplemental insurance plans can cost in the thousands. The result is that many seniors have to forgo care, become medically noncompliant, and/or spend all their retirement savings. Nevertheless, over the past few years, I have been researching a small, but growing number of retirees who are filling the gaps in their health insurance coverage by traveling to Mexico.
